BHC Crane provides operated and maintained, mobile hydraulic crane service and we’ve been supplying this great service for over 50 years straight. We are considered a local crane rental operation. However, our location in the heart of Southern California’s harbors and petroleum refining district has demanded that we compete with some of the crane industries largest businesses. We have been awarded the annual service contract at a large Wilmington Refinery, now operated by Tesoro, for over twenty years straight. This is no small feat considering the constant attempts of national and regional crane companies to win this contract, including the crane rental company that has the national Tesoro account. We believe that our success and longevity at this location is a testament to our ability to manage safety and expenses while offering the accuracy and reliability BHC has come to be known for.
Our primary focus at BHC is to provide a safe and accurate lift every time. We feel that our safety record reflects how important these issues are to us. Our safety record is impeccable and we are quite proud of it. This company has not had a single work related accident or illness of either the reportable or non-reportable OSHA classification in over three years. The ability of our crane operators and the management team at BHC to maintain such a perfect record over the years has resulted in a current Workers Compensation Rating Bureau calculation and subsequent adjustment of 60% applied to our insurance costs. We have been informed by our insurance broker, who is an authorized representative of State Compensation Fund, that they cannot recall another crane rental operation ever obtaining such a favorable rate.
BHC is located in Long Beach, California making travel into Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura, San Bernardino, and beyond easy with multiple routes allowing us to react to traffic patterns and arrive in the shortest possible time. Because of our strong relationship with our customers we commonly are asked to travel extensive distances to provide the quality of service they just can’t find from other, sometimes more local, outfits. From the beginning of the telecomm construction boom and through the quickly expanding green energy market, we have found ourselves traveling greater and greater distances for our customers. Our experienced sales staff has always found ways to accommodate these requests while still remaining very competitively priced and we would be happy to offer an estimate for even the most remote jobsite for you to consider.
Our facility is four miles from the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles; at the inland end of the Terminal Island Freeway. The property consists of over four acres of gated area which is monitored and guarded 24 hours a day and an additional three acres of overflow area that can be modified to accommodate our customer’s needs. This vast facility, located only minutes from the ports, allows us to offer unique solutions to those conducting business in the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. We host logistical storage, transloading, and other services on a regular basis and have storage agreements with many manufacturers and suppliers of imported and exported goods.
We have worked with most of the prominent stevedoring companies in the ports, all of the local refineries and power generating facilities adjacent to the Ports, and many of the small and large businesses contracting within the Ports, not to mention our long history with construction service providers throughout Southern California. We have master contracts with an extensive assortment of these prominent businesses and would be happy to provide a list of references.
